Nanotechnology hails into food industry

Abstract:
OilFresh Company today announced the U.S. market introduction of the OilFresh 1000, a catalytic anti-oxidant device for use in restaurant deep-frying machines.

A flat, semi-permanent, vertical insert, made of an advanced nanoceramic material, OilFresh fits most brands of deep-fryers.

The concept behind OilFresh is based on the leading-edge science of nanotechnology, in which, as Sonny Oh describes it, "surface areas are increased exponentially by reducing the surface particle size to the nano-level which greatly enhances the material's physical and chemical properties. Used in a deep-fryer, the OilFresh 1000 acts as a catalyst. Despite its relatively small size, it exposes a huge surface area to the oil -- diverting oxygen away from the oil and preventing the oil from clumping. It also allows for a shorter frying time, with less oil remaining in the food.
